Legship

 

Often called the Gateway to West Sikkim, Legship is slowly gaining in popularity. On the left banks of the river Rangit is a Shiva temple known as the Kirateshwar Mahadev Mandir, which has many mythological episodes of the Mahabharata attached to it. The main festival of the temple, Bala Chaturdesi is observed in December each year. Other temples dedicated to Lord Rama and Durga are also found here making it an important pilgrimage destination for Hindus. There is a Dharamshala next to the Shiva temple.
4 kms from here, close to Reshi is the very popular Phur Cha-chu sulphur baths. This hot water spring is well known for its medicinal properties. Close by is Kah-do Sang phu or ‘the cave of the occult fairies’ considered sacred by the people. Rangit Water World, a lake formed by the Rangit dam offers swimming, angling and river rafting facilities.
